Honolulu airport improves travel experience with NanoLumens10 November 2017
The digital infrastructure at Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport has been enhanced with the addition of four large-scale NanoLumens Nixel Series LED displays, installed by Ford AV.
NanoLumens regional sales manager Eric Seigler, commented: “The growing installation significantly improves the travel experience by providing passengers with a state-of-the-art communications platform that delivers updated information on flight times, news, weather, breaking news and tourism videos.
This multi-year project has transformed the airport’s public communication system into a model for the air travel industry

“With air travel increasing every year, it is increasingly important for airport authorities to deploy communications platforms that quickly and compellingly engage travellers with the information they need to get to their gate and final destination on time and stress-free. Working closely with our integration partner Ford AV, we have upgraded the airport’s public information infrastructure to simplify travel with unrivalled display solutions.”
Ford AV has been working with NanoLumens for several years, forging a successful partnership that is built on NanoLumens’ ability to custom design LED visualisation solutions in any size, shape, curvature and pixel pitch.
“We will continue to partner with NanoLumens on projects where creativity, top-of-the-line technology and stunning visual impact are required,” said Travis Ellis, Ford AV project engineer. “This multi-year project has transformed the airport’s public communication system into a model for the air travel industry. The goal was to bring highly visible, attractive information to the approximately 20 million travellers that pass through the airport’s corridors each year, and we’ve succeeded in that mission.”
The 6mm pixel pitch, 2,000-nit NanoLumens Nixel Series displays feature feeds from SITA-manufactured software running on Dell Optiplex XE2 computers, which generate the flight information, in addition to a BrightSign XT1143 media player that outputs destination city weather, text ticker and advertising videos.
“These four large scale NanoLumens displays have introduced a vibrant, eye-catching ambience to lobbies 4, 6, 7 and 8 of the airport,” Ellis added. “With the completion of this phase of the project, the airport now includes a total of six NanoLumens displays, and we look forward to working on more projects with both Daniel K. Inouye International Airport and NanoLumens.”
